  – One at the start. This loop stays on the paved road OUTSIDE the common (i.e., around Washington Square)
  – One at the end. This loop goes clockwise around the INSIDE of the common
– You will stay on paved roads until the end where it ends in the Common.
Helpful volunteers will be on the course directing your way. Have a great race!
